List Of Peak Climbing In Nepal
Peak Climbing in Nepal
To stand on top of a Himalayan peak, and feel the sense of achievement of having scaled a mountain much bigger than anything in the Alps is the 'ultimate dream' for many trekkers, and indeed climbers.
In 1978 the Nepal Mountaineering Association designated a number of peaks throughout Nepal as 'trekking peaks', which could be attempted with a minimum of bureaucracy or formality, and this has allowed the 'dream' of a Himalayan ascent to be realized for many people. A more appropriate title, however, would be non-expedition peaks as none can be 'trekked up', and some present serious mountaineering challenges.
